Dr. Jean-Paul Bahary, a radio-oncologist at the CHUM and a researcher-member of the Institut, had the idea to create an event that brought together his colleagues and friends for a unique evening. This became the Soirée Masquée which is now in its third year.
This year, the Soirée Masquée will be held in association with the Consulate General of Mexico in Montreal, so you can experience one of the most important Mexican holidays: Dìa de Muertos.
As a result of this unique collaboration, members of the public will be privileged to an authentic and astounding décor that is representative of the rites of the festivals. The evening will be hosted by none other than author and comedian, Sophie Faucher, with a musical performance by the singular Mamselle Ruiz, an artist of Mexican origin, highlighting the evening.
This colourful holiday, filled with music and festivities, is steeped in tradition. Let yourself be carried away by the picturesque décor and old, profound traditions and customs of Dìa de Muertos and celebrate life!
The Institut du cancer de Montreal aims to use the funds raised during the Soirée Masquée to purchase a new piece of cutting-edge technology: the Incucyte from Essen Bioscience. This piece of equipment will allow researchers to visualize laboratory-grown cells in real-time and monitor their behaviour when faced with new treatments.
Since its first edition, the Soirée Masquée has raised over $121 000 which has been invested in research projects supported by the Institut du cancer de Montréal.
